I'm Giving Away a PAIR of Transporters!
If you haven't already seen the Transporter (, it's a unique new drive technology that lets you replicate all of your files (or just the ones you want) to other physical locations.  So you put Transporter "A" at home, and Transporter "B" at work.  They stay synced up through the InterTubez automagically!

Well, our friends over at the Transporter project gave me a PAIR to give away to one of YOU! :-)  Here's how you win:

1) Do you have me in a Circle? Yeah! Step 1 complete.
2) Circle +FileTransporter!
3) Publicly share this post.

You're done!!!

What, you want more chances to win? :-)  Ok, leave a comment below telling me what you'll do with a couple of these for another chance.  I plan to share my movies and stuff with family.  How about you?

WHAT? You still want MORE chances to win? :-P  Ok, well, +John Pozadzides is giving away another pair right here:

Of course, the best thing you can do is head over to the Transporter Kickstarter page and back the project!  I've already done it, and so have 342 other people!  They're 2/3rds of the way done!!!

PS - The giveaway is limited to the US.  Hopefully they'll have a successful Kickstarter launch and go International after that! :-D

PSS - You'll get yours after the development is complete.  So it'll take a couple months, but you'll be among the first to get one!!!

Remember why you liked NASA and space exploration. We've stopped dreaming.

I'm giving away 5 FREE Powerbags!

Oh, have I got a fun little giveaway for you guys today! Our friends over at +Powerbag, who make some of the coolest backpacks on Earth, have given me 5 Powerbags (worth up to $179 each!) to just give away however I want! So, you KNOW I'm going to give them to you guys on Google+!

Here is all you need to do to win:
1) Have you got me in one of your Circles? SUPER! Step 1 complete!
2) You've gotta Publicly SHARE this post.

That's It! Simple, huh?

Ok, some of you know that I often give you a second chance to enter to win, so here it is - make sure and circle +Powerbag, and you've got an additional entry! :-) God, this contest is just too easy… And I'll announce the winners on Monday!

EDIT: Holy Jeepers Batman - a THIRD chance to win! +Cali Lewis has ANOTHER 5 FREE Powerbags to give away! See her post here:

BTW, if you don't know what a Powerbag is yet, watch this video and you'll see exactly why you're gonna want one of these bad boys:

And if you DO win, you'll get to head over to and choose your favorite bag and they'll send it to you anywhere in the Universe! Actually, I lied. You must have a shipping address in the US or Canada.

If you don't win, you can always use the super secret 15% off discount code "geekbeat" at checkout. It'll also get you free shipping!

PS - Powerbag hasn't paid us a single cent! We love their products and we just think its great that they love US enough to let us give away some of their gear, and share a discount with our community.
